    My Hubby decided to try a dish out of the Wagamama cookbook and he converted it to be SW friendly.

    We bought some edamame beans in their pods, steamed them then Frylighted them with some chopped red chilli and then poured garlic salt over them and had them as a starter, then he made this:

    * Tip: if you're not keen on Lemongrass (like me) only use 1 stalk of it, not the 2!

    Chilli Sauce

    Frylight
    1 or 2 lemongrass stalks (outer leaves removed, finely chopped)
    1 tsp peeled & grated fresh ginger root
    1 chilli, trimmed and finely chopped
    1 red onion, peeled & finely chopped
    2 garlic cloves, peeled & finely chopped
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp sugar
    1 tbsp light soy sauce
    1 red pepper, trimmed, deseeded and finely chopped
    1tbsp shop bought sweet chilli sauce
    1tbsp Tomato Ketchup
    300ml (1/2 pint water)

    Heat the Frylight in a small pan over a hot heat, add the next 8 ingredients and sauté for 7-8 minutes without colouring. Add the red pepper and continue cooking gently for 8-10 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients, bring to the boil and simmer for 10 minutes. Blitz in a blender & use

    Yasai Chilli Men

    250g Soba Noodles
    Frylight
    6*2cm (3/4in) cubes, firm tofu
    6 button mushrooms
    handful of sugarsnap peas
    1 courgette, cut diaganolly into 5mm slices
    2 carrots, peeled & thinly sliced
    2 tomatoes, quartered
    300ml chilli sauce (from recipe above)

    Cook the noodles in a large pan of boiling water for 2-3 minutes or until tender. Drain & refresh under cold water.

    Heat a wok over a medium heat until completely hot and add Frylight. Add the tofu, stir fry for 5 minutes until golden. Add all of the vegetables and stir fry for 3-4 minutes until they are tender.

    Pour in the chilli sauce and bring to the boil. Divide the noodles between 2 plates and top with the stir fry.

    Thanks loads for this! Will be having a good look at some of those soon, maybe for next week's menu plan!

    How did the tofu turn out in the second recipe?

    It was a little bit mushy but when I checked the packet we hadn't bought the "firm" one, d'oh! It really was delicious! :D

    OK thanks for the tip I will look for that! I LOVE tofu whenever I have it at restaurants but whenever I make it, it seems to remind me of soap!

    Try and find a Chinese Supermarket if you can and get the firm tofu (if you can't get it from a local supermarket!) :)
